Film Description:
"This film presents the lobster fishing industry in Nova Scotia with a brief reference to the cooperative movement and how co-ops are used in the affairs of the people. Pierre, a fisherman, is shown as he sails forth to set his one hundred traps. The film shows both the problems of adverse weather and also the methods used to land the lobster and prepare them for market."
